Everyone is trying digital printing but that few know how to maximize its graphic potential.
For that reason, we have partnered with Neenah on this summer’s Digital Print Cover Contest in which designers are invited — with no entry fees — to “Design Your Own Cover of GDUSA on Neenah Digital Paper.” The idea is three-fold: to give you an opportunity to learn more about digital printing; to encourage you to become more familiar with papers that enhance digitally printed projects; and to showcase your creativity in a premium spot that will make sure you get lots of recognition and exposure. And, yes, I said “free entries.”
Neenah is putting its money where its mouth is by covering the entry fees so that it is absolutely free for you to enter as many cover designs as you wish.
With ten days to go, the submissions thus far have been creative and thoughtful. But there is lots more opportunity to be among the multiple winners and honorable mentions.
The challenge is to design a digitally-printed cover tip-on outsert that will double as the September/October 2014 magazine cover of GDUSA (which, of course, is printed for you). The entry process is fast and easy: you can get information here on what the judges are looking for; downloading a GDUSA cover template; selecting the best Neenah paper for the job from their rich variety of textures and colors; and much more. All graphic designers, art directors and other creative professionals at design firms, ad agencies, inhouse departments, and other creative businesses are welcome. Groups and teams are also welcome as are freelancers and currently enrolled graphic design students.
The deadline is August 8, so ENTER NOW.
